The Patriotic Diaspora
By Amitabh Kumar
It was quoted by the India Government's Singhvi Commission that "the sun never sets in the Indian diaspora".
An NRI is an Indian Citizen who has migrated to othercountry in search of better prospects or for any other reasons. Indians from all parts of the country & different ethnic backgrounds have migrated to various parts of the world & hence they are categoried as NRIs. They are scattered in regions such as South East Asia, United States of America, United Kingdom, Myanmar, Soudi Arabia, Pilipines, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, North America, Canada, Fiji etc.
It was quoted by the India Government's singhvi Commission that "the sun never sets in the Indian diaspora". The term Diaspora typically covers NRIs & PIOs (Person of Indian Orgin), and it is very special for India as these people have carved a niche for themselves in an alienated world & external surroundings.
These days a lot of websites & journals are focusing on these NRI masses. They provide us with NRI News,NRI events & in general all relevant NRI information from all parts of the world.
Website like www.nrirealtynews.com is doing a good job in keeping us updated with the latest NRI events happening & the government's steps to encourage its NRI population towards the development of India is worth appreciating.
Pravasi Bhartiya Divas is also one major initiative taken by the government to extend a welcome note to all its NRIs in the world. After all this land belongs to them as well. These days steps have been taken by the government to bring these NRI's back to the roots of our country, to lessen the exodus of skilled & intellectual manpower to other countries.
Government of India, a few years back had established a high level committee under the leadership of Dr. L M Sanghvi, with the mandate of understanding the problems & difficulties faced and hopes & expectations of the Indian communities worldwide.
Whenever you speak to NRIs settled in whichever part of the world, you would see that most of them carry their motherland in their hearts somewhere, they have cherished the memories & preserved the values which India had taught them.
